Civil and Environmental Engineering

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering prepares people who will invent the technologies of the future and create solutions to challenges we haven’t even imagined yet. Established in 1898, the School is now among the largest civil and environmental engineering programs in the country. Students on the civil track train to tackle projects like roads and bridges, sure, but they also work on technologies for green buildings, strategies that help us recover from disasters, and projects to alleviate poverty. Environmental engineers may focus on issues like clean drinking water, air-quality monitoring and pollution controls. 

Georgia Tech researchers have developed the Ground Robot for Mapping Infrastructure (GRoMI), which uses a hybrid thermal laser scanning system. GRoMI is a project of the Robotics and Intelligent Construction Automation Laboratory in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
